Hi Guys,

I'm planning on booking a couple of flights with Air Asia and wondered if anyone knew what they where like? Are they reliable? Safe?

I don't know anything about them so just wanted to find out some feed back before booking with them.

Thanks!
Tee

I have booked and travelled by Air Asia many times and found it to be convenient, safe and affordable. The website also works well and the booking process is quite simple too

I agree with Arif - I thought they were really good. i flew with them a few times and their planes seemed to be brand new.

I've been on shorts flights with Air Asia. Extremely cheap airfares.

I often use Airasia for domestic flights. Booking online is easy. Sometimes they'd retime my flights and they'd sms me to inform the new flight time. Last time, my flights mite be delayed haf hour or so but that problem seemed to have ceased now. And they are getting more new A320 planes too!

I'm going to Thailand in August-September and I'm planning to take a couple of internal flights with Airasia. Is it adviced to book these flights weeks in advance or can I just book them in Thailand a couple of days ahead (for instance book on monday for a flight on wednesday)

Sorry for stealing your topic

I have used them a couple of times and booked many clients on them. I have only had one reported instance where the flight was cancelled and my client was put on the next available flight.

As for the website being good like Arifkool says, I think the quality of the website must depend on which country you view it from. I think it is one of the hardest websites to initially enter as does almost every person who I deal with daily who has used them. This is the Australia link, so possibly when you go to other countries links it opens a lot easier. Once you do get on to the site it is pretty easy to use, just got to be careful not to accidentally accept the travel insurance that they include if you already have a seperately purchased policy.

To the other person who hi-jacked your thread, normally you can book within a couple of days of departure but their are a couple of risks you take by doing this. You may find that the flight gets booked out or is overbooked if you do decide to leave it late. Apart from that risk, in all likelyhood you will have to pay considerably more than if you can pre-book a couple of months in advance as the airlines are all of the opinion "if you need to travel urgently enough you will pay almost anything".

I flew with them last year and thought they was very good. Book way ahead if you can to get the best prices for fares, they are real cheap.

Hmm... How can it be "one of the hardest websites" and at the same time "is pretty easy to use"?

The main page is the country and language selection. Once the selection is done, you will be redirected to the booking page. Only two clicks on the mouse, but if you're too slow to select, you'll be notified by the annoying popup asking you to make your selection. This process is the same for all countries and links. The country/language selection page is to give visitors information and current flight promotions from that country and most importantly, to display the prices in currency of the selected country. Also, if you select Australia, prices shown are inclusive of taxes and charges (I think they're required to do so by Australian laws) while for other countries, prices shown are before tax and charges.
